    The protagonists of American popular culture are outsiders with scant patience for authority. The Western heroes invented and Louis L’Amour and portrayed by John Wayne, and their urban cousins – the private detectives of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler they have an inviolable inner code. They don’t betray their friends and they don’t exploit the weak. They don’t aspire to entry into the elite, and they don’t apologize for their vulgarity. They come in comic form for example Huckleberry Finn, or nastily serious, like William Munny in Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven, or a bit of both in Hammett’s wise-cracking angel of...

    In December, when the authorities identified the suspect wanted in the theft of a bucket of gold flakes valued at $1.6 million, Detective Martin Pastor of the New York Police Department vowed he would find him. “I’m going to come and get you,” the detective said in an interview with WNBC. “He can run as far as he can, and we will find him.”The authorities said the suspect, Julio Nivelo, did in fact run after the theft in September, from New York to Florida — and then to Los Angeles. On Thursday, Mr. Nivelo was caught in his native Ecuador,...

    Opera singers will come together tomorrow to honour Hillary Clinton, while Donald Trump is being sworn in. Glen Roven has set two Clinton speeches to music to be sung by Patricia Racette, Nathan Gunn, Isabel Leonard, Lawrence Brownlee, Matthew Polenzani and others.‘Setting Hillary’s words was a very emotional experience,’ said Glen Roven. ‘Phrases that fly by in a speech are naturally elongated in a musical setting, and as I set each word, slowly and methodically I was in tears. When I mentioned this project to these singers, their immediate response was, ‘I’m in.” The Hillary Speeches Trailer

    Ivanka Trump is going to be a huge deal in Washington. While a federal anti-nepotism law could prevent the 35-year-old from holding an official White House position after her father, Donald, assumes his role as the 45th president of the United States on January 20, “unofficially,” an Ivanka source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly, “she will be Donald’s closest adviser.” Over the course of her father’s successful campaign, the husky-voiced Seventeen cover model turned Trump Organization executive evolved into his most trusted consultant. “He looks to Ivanka for advice and consultation on almost everything,” notes a close...

Nearly three months later, the sisters have turned the phrase into a rallying cry for Ithacans worried about what President-elect Trump’s words and policies will mean for women and women’s health services across the country.

    Gov. Cuomo kept his new budget hush-hush all Tuesday, and one reason is obvious: His call to extend the millionaires tax (again) shows his rank hypocrisy. Again. “No new taxes. Period,” Cuomo declared in 2011, nixing any extension of the “millionaires tax.”: “You are kidding yourself if you think you can be one of the highest-taxed states in the nation, have a reputation for being anti-business and have a rosy economic future.”

    Next week, white nationalists like Jared Taylor will celebrate a moment they've been waiting decades to see, when Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Members of the white nationalist movement were among the first to embrace Trump's candidacy, and they celebrated after his election. "Jan. 20 reflects a significant defeat for egalitarian orthodoxy," Taylor says. Taylor promotes a very different orthodoxy, one in which race is central to innate abilities and national success. He is working to build a United States explicitly for white people. Trump arguably helps this by telling supporters that they're...

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Health insurance would have to cover birth control without co-pays in New York even if President-elect Donald Trump repeals “Obamacare,” under legislation proposed Wednesday by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The bill would codify into state law the Affordable Care Act mandate for cost-free contraception and expand upon the federal requirements to provide cost-free coverage for all birth control methods, including vasectomies and emergency contraception like Plan B. It also would allow access to a year’s worth of contraception at one time and prohibit insurance companies from reviews that can limit or delay contraceptive coverage.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo is on his unconventional State of the State tour around New York. January 9, the Democrat gave one speech in New York City and a modified version later in Buffalo. In what some see as a possible precursor to a presidential run, Cuomo talked about economic development and took a thinly veiled shot at the president elect for promoting divisiveness. Cuomo touted high-tech industry development in the state, ride sharing service expansion into areas outside of New York City and the move forward in raising the minimum wage. While many are saying the Democrat has Presidential aspirations,...

Northern District Judge Gary Sharpe granted the defendants' motion to stay the award granted to Rome lawyer AJ Bosman pending an appeal. Sharpe said plaintiff Christopher Miller's judgment of $280,004 after three trials in the case between 2012 and 2016 qualified him as the prevailing party and made Bosman eligible for fees. Miller, a white male, argued throughout the case that he was given difficult job assignments in retaliation...

More than 700,000 students in more than 1,200 city schools could see bigger class sizes, fewer teachers and less enrichment and after-school programs if Trump pulls federal dollars now used for Title 1 funding at public schools with low-income students, the analysis from the United Federation of Teachers found.

    Donald Trump rang in 2017 at a New Year’s Eve bash at his Mar-a-Lago estate with Joseph Cinque – reportedly a convicted felon who goes by the nickname “Joey No Socks”. Cinque, a longtime acquaintance of Trump’s, can be seen grinning on stage as the president-elect reads off a list of accomplishments he intends to achieve in office. In a video of the speech, which was obtained and published by the Palm Beach Daily News, Cinque, wearing a tuxedo, claps and cheers loudly – even pumping his arms in the air when Trump pledges to repeal the Barack Obama’s signature...

    There is little doubt that easy access to federally subsidized student loans has contributed to the astronomical increase in the cost of attending college in the United States.  After all, what 18 year old would turn down $200,000 in free money to party for 4 years?  As an added bonus, when you figure out upon graduation that your degree in anthropology if fairly worthless, you can always just move back in with mom and force taxpayers to pick up your debt burden.  Anything less would be a substantial "triggering" event and we just can't have that.As we noted roughly...

    Donald Trump told Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer in a phone call he likes him more than his GOP brethren House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a source close to the transition team said. During a recent phone call, the president-elect “said to Schumer he likes Schumer more than Ryan and McConnell because they both wanted him to lose,” the source said. “They are Republicans and Trump knows they didn’t support him.”

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided to commute the sentence of a domestic terrorist, Judith Alice Clark, who willingly participated in a bloody robbery that led to the deaths of a security guard and two police officers. Clark, who pleaded not guilty, but was convicted of felony murder, had been sentenced to such a long prison term that she had no real hope for parole during her lifetime – until now. Cuomo’s decision to commute Clark’s sentence will not immediately result in her release, but the steep reduction in her sentence will make her eligible for parole early this year....

    A California man has been charged with setting up fake businesses in three states, then using names taken from temporary visas issued to student visitors on a cultural exchange to obtain more than $355,000 in unemployment benefits for nonexistent workers, federal prosecutors in Iowa said in court documents. Nikolai Monastyrski is charged in federal court in Iowa with wire and mail fraud related to the scheme that prosecutors say he perpetrated there as well as in Illinois and Pennsylvania. A complaint filed Nov. 10 by Dana Johnson, a Chicago-based U.S. Department of Labor special agent, says Monastyrski was able to...
